(Reuters) – The U.S. Open will be at full capacity for its two-week run in 2021, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) announced on Thursday, making it the first Grand Slam to be played at 100 % of its capacity amid COVID. 19 pandemic.
The tournament was held without spectators in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and will be the first Grand Slam to have full attendance since the Australian Open last year.
“We are very excited to welcome our amazing fans to the US Open this year,” USTA Executive Director Mike Dowse said in a statement https://www.usopen.org/en_US/news/articles/ 2021-06 -17 / 2021_us_open_to_welcome_back_fans_tickets_on_sale_in_july.html? Promo = media_wall & slide = 0.
“While we were proud to have been able to host the event in 2020, we miss having our fans on site, because we know they are a huge part of what makes the US Open experience unlike any other.
“Our sport arose in the most difficult moments, and this year’s US Open promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the game, of those who play it and of those who delight in it.”
Organizers of the Cincinnati Masters, the Grand Slam tuning tournament, announced last month that they also plan to operate the August tournament in the city at full capacity.
The USTA said that the tickets for August 30 to September 30. 12 Grand Slam will go on sale starting July 13.
This year’s Wimbledon men’s and women’s singles finals will be played with a large crowd on center court.
